With four laps to go in last weekend’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway, Chase Elliott was attempting to keep the lead from Matt DiBenedetto through a series of aggressive blocks, when the pair make contact, sending both cars into the outside wall and triggering “The Big One”.
Late in the accident, Kyle Busch’s No. 18 Toyota Camry can be seen sliding down to the inside wall, before bouncing back into the path of Kaz Grala’s Kaulig Racing Chevrolet Camaro, who the two cars making brutal contact at the enterance to pit road. Luckily, both drivers were able to emerge from the cars under their own power, although it was later revealed on Twitter that Grala suffered an injury to his left ankle.
I sustained an injury to my left ankle in the crash on lap 158 this past Saturday. I’m currently in the process of rehabbing it back to 100%, and have been medically cleared to return to competition immediately! 🙏🏻 pic.twitter.com/PmqMBAgldH
